Home from a surprise mini vacation and tagged:)

I hope all of you are having a very blessed week!!First I want to thank all of you for your kind comments and prayer for my family and I!I am sending HUGEcyber hugs to all of you:)Things are moving along with our new house:)Waiting for the inspector to get back to us with the full report,but we are shooting for the closing to take place in about two weeks!!Praise God:)
So,hubbys brother lent me some money so I could spend a few days with the kids at the Jersey shore.I am so thankful for that:)We all had such a great time.My sister In-laws husband took my 7 year old crabbing off the peer yesterday.They left at like 5 am.He had a blast,and the kids got to eat their first ever crab last night:)Their grandparents took them down on Sunday.I spent the entire day home alone.I never miss church.I actually ended up having a day that was so,so blessed though.I put on some praise music and cleaned the house.Which,once again I never do on Sunday.It was good though,because I got to worship God in the comfort of my own home,got stuff done that blessed my husband,and I got to pray all by myself,and really,for the first time in a long time I just completely poured my heart out to the Lord.I`ve just been so stressed out lately.Not so much about the current issues going on because I know God will provide,but just my own sin.I`ve really had a heavy heart lately and felt strongly convicted about some issues in my life and it just felt really good to have some time alone with the Lord.Just focusing on Him with no distractions.I felt so peaceful.It was a kind of peace I just cant even describe.Sorry for my rambling:)
Monday,hubby and I had a few errands to run,food shopping,came home and cleaned some more.Then we had the inspection at 6pm and his father and step mom met us at the new house(pictures to follow soon)then they came back here for some cake.Then on Tuesday I left at 6:30am to go to meet the kids at the shore.It was so nice.We spent the whole day by the beach and at the pool.Then at night we went out for pizza on the boardwalk and played games with the kids.Yesterday was ride day.After my son got home from crabbing with his uncle we went on the rides then went swimming and back on the boardwalk at night.Then after the kids are in bed we usually have a drink outside and talk till 1 or 2 in the morning.It`s not a restful vacation,but so much fun.All we do is laugh all day:)

Now that I`ve rambled to no end,Susan from Saved Sinner Tagged me.I have to name five of my favorite things.So here goes:
#1.Peace I have with God through His Son Jesus Christ
#2.My family
#3.Ice cream
#4.laughter
#5.Friends,blogging,church,okay I know I have more than 5 now so I`ll stop(LOL)

Sounds like a wonderful week! Nothing like a little time to just be alone with yourself, with the Lord, and "grow" a little! Like Wendy, I can't wait to see the pictures!!!! Sending big hugs your way!!!! I so much appreciate your comments on my blog, and thank you for your prayers. Means more to me than you will ever know!
